This project shows how MATLAB and Arduino can be used to build a basic Whac-a-Mole game. It can be used with middle- and high-school students to explore electrical engineering and programming concepts. It demonstrates how to use switches, LEDs, and MATLAB to create a game for others to play. You will need a SparkFun Redboard (or an Arduino Uno), a BreadBoard, 27 jumper wires, 9 330 Ohm resistors, 4 10K Ohm resistors, aluminum foil, and 4 RGB LEDs. For a description, you can see this video:
